Energy Readings


What can I expect during a reading?

Your Human Design reading will begin with a general overview of your aura and the way you’re designed to energetically interact with the world, and you’ll come away with a better understanding of how to embody yourself. We’ll go over the conditioned and unconditioned centers in your bodygraph, how to use your body to make the best decisions, life purpose, and activated channels. This can help you recognize how to distinguish intuition from anxiety, let go of behaviors that aren’t serving you, and embrace the person you came here to be. We can also look at your ideal digestion, environment, and mental processes, as well as how nurturing those areas will affect your overall well-being. After your reading, you’ll receive a video recording that you can download and refer back to when needed.


Do I need to prepare for my reading?

Just bring yourself! It helps if you have questions or specific areas you want to focus on, as I work best when a dialogue is happening.

Methods & Materials

It is our goal to have the most sustainable, environmentally responsible studio possible, and we’re always looking out for better methods and materials. Here are a few green practices currently in place:

  • All precious metals are recycled

  • Cast metals are sustainably sourced

  • Metal scraps are saved, sorted, and recycled

  • We use rags instead of disposable paper towels whenever possible

  • Packaging is minimal, compact, and printed on recycled and found materials

  • We reuse packaging from supply shipments

  • Jewelry is shipped in hand-stamped cotton bags, which we encourage you to reuse. (We like to use them for jewelry storage, travel pouches, and herbal drawer sachets.)

All metals are sourced from reputable companies in the USA and are lead and nickel-free. Cast pieces are molded from the original handmade design by a US-based casting company, and all pieces are hand-fabricated and finished here in the Montana studio.


Shipping

As most pieces are handmade to order, please allow 1-3 weeks of fabrication time before your order ships. Your unique handmade piece will be worth the wait!

Please let us know if you have a deadline and we will do our best to expedite your order, or you can shop the Ready to Ship section.

All items in an order are shipped together, so if an order contains ready-to-ship pieces and made-to-order pieces, it will ship when all items are completed. If you want your Ready to Ship piece to ship sooner, please place that order separately.

Express orders will receive priority in the production queue, but may still take up to 3 weeks for fabrication. Orders are shipped via USPS with tracking. Please note that USPS only guarantees shipping times for Express shipments, and we cannot be held responsible for delays once packages leave our hands. Tracking may be unavailable for some international shipments.

International buyers are responsible for any customs fees that may arise. On customs forms, we cannot mark packages as gifts or undervalue the contents.

All jewelry ships in a hand-stamped muslin keepsake bag. We encourage you to reuse and recycle your bags! The uses are endless, including jewelry storage, travel bags, or herb-filled drawer sachets.


Over time, your jewelry will develop a patina, especially when exposed to heat and humidity. Brass, bronze, and even sterling silver all have the potential to discolor skin because the alloys contain copper, but the discoloration is completely harmless and temporary. It usually occurs in hot and humid environments, but it really depends on your individual body chemistry. Sterling usually doesn't cause a reaction because of the lower copper content (just enough to give it some strength). If you find that your skin reacts, putting a layer of clear nail polish on the jewelry where it touches the skin can help! You can prevent tarnish by storing it in a plastic bag to keep oxygen exposure to a minimum, and wearing it also "polishes" away tarnish throughout the day.

To restore the finish, try gently rubbing the metal with—

  • Ketchup or tomato paste on a cloth

  • A paste of lemon and baking soda (careful here with gemstones!)

  • The open half of a sliced, salted lemon

  • A jewelry polishing cloth

Avoid using abrasives on gemstones to prevent scratches.

Tips to prevent tarnish— 

  • Heat and humidity accelerate oxidization, so avoid leaving jewelry in the bathroom.

  • Limit contact between jewelry and cosmetics/lotions.

  • Store jewelry in a ziplock bag.

  • Wear it all the time!
